layered back cut out blazer

$340.00

Presented here an amazing piece of vintage ANN DEMEULEMEESTER. From the front the garment appears to be a simple, elegant two button blazer, but incorporated into the front is a second vest layer which is concealed when the jacket is buttoned but visible if the front placket is left open. The back is just as interesting, as an inverted triangle has been cut from the back to reveal whatever is worn (or not worn) underneath. The combined effect of this details is to produce a garment which appears deceptively simple but is actually enormously intricate when you see it closely (or from behind). The finishing is of the high standard you'd expect from a piece of Ann tailoring, with lapels painstakingly prick stitched by hand and elegant construction methods and lining throughout. The fabric is also beautiful, a soft wool with beautiful handle, movement, and fall.

It should be noted that there are two small holes in one of the sleeves (see picture), but the garment is in good condition otherwise.
